Researchers from Brigham and Women’s Hospital, King’s College London, and other institutions have developed a technique for measuring brain activity that’s 60 times faster than traditional fMRI.

New technique tracks brain function 60 times faster than traditional fMRI

The human brain functions rapidly enough that even upon being exposed to stimuli, neurons are activated, prompting subconscious reactions and, a fraction of a...

Scientists can now predict intelligence from brain scans

If you've ever lied about your IQ to seem more intelligent, it's time to fess up. Scientists can now tell how smart you are...
MIT researchers describe a machine-learning algorithm that can register brain scans and other 3-D images more than 1,000 times more quickly using novel learning techniques.

Faster analysis of medical images

Until now, MRI technique has been used to form pictures of the anatomy and the physiological processes of the body in both health and disease. This...
This graphic shows the procedure of identifying and extracting intrinsic signals from big arteries and veins in an fMRI scan, and using them to calculate the cerebral circulation time of young healthy males and females.

Medical imaging technology detects vascular disorders, injuries in brain

Using recently developed analytical imaging technology based on functional MRI, scientists at the Purdue University have identified cerebral vascular disorders and injuries that do not require...
MIT researchers have designed MRI sensors that form clusters in the presence of calcium, allowing them to monitor neuron activity in the living brain.

Calcium-based MRI sensor enables more sensitive brain imaging

MIT neuroscientists have built up another magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sensor that enables them to screen neural movement profound inside the mind by following...
Epilepsy linked to brain volume and thickness differences

Epilepsy is associated with brain volume and thickness differences

The biggest consistently neuroimaging investigation of individuals with epilepsy, distributed today in Brain, demonstrates that epilepsy includes more far reaching physical contrasts than already...
